Stop acting like you aren't worth the effort.
I spent a lot of years putting basically no effort at all into my appearance -- because I felt like I wasn't worth it. My current (and most successful) weight loss journey didn't start until a few months after I finally decided to start dressing well (and yes, there is a way to dress a very overweight body well!), taking care of things like my hair and makeup, and generally making sure that l looked put-together, not haphazard. The weight loss came later -- once I really started believing I was worth the effort for that, too.
- don't give up, because eventually you'll try again, and you'll be really annoyed that you've slipped even further from your goal
- don't get cocky. You do NOT have this beat, and you never will. As soon as you stop paying attention, you'll go flying off the cliff.

I reckon I'd say, what are you waiting for? Waiting to start eating healthy... tomorrow... January 1st.. after that big party on Saturday? Waiting to start exercising til you "feel like it"? Waiting to work on getting healthy, til you have health problems?
